Catholic Church in Beijing?

Im looking for a Catholic Church in Beijing prefereably close to the Chongwen District (I will be staying @ Courtyard Marriott Beijing). I read somewhere about the Xuanwumen Church and it says that has an English mass but no more information. Does anyone know about this or has a recommendation?

At the Nán Táng (南堂, South Church--the Xuānwǔ Mén one) English masses are (or were, when last checked) at 10am and 4pm on Sundays, Latin ones Sunday to Friday at 6am, the remainder in Chinese.

Before just going on any "Catholic Church" in China, you may want to really do some research about the state of Catholicism there. It's a very complicated issue, with government-sanctioned churches and Vatican-sanctioned underground churches. Though recently also a lot of grey area, with some government appointed bishops recognized by Rome, etc...

I am no expert on this, but unlike in most parts of the world, a "Catholic Church" may mean more than one thing in China. So, please find more information.

I understand this, that’s why I did not asked specifically for a Roman Catholic Church. Thanks for all your help!
